Tutor Spotlight: David Vasey

David Vasey has been teaching Tech Savvy Seniors for nearly a decade at Macquarie Community College. When we asked what keeps him returning year after year he simply said “Because it is fun – I’m too old to do things that I don’t enjoy”. It’s clear that his continued dedication to the program stems from […]

Testimonials

Before I started studying Aged Care, I went to find a job but I didn’t have a certificate or knowledge in the aged care community. Now I’m studying aged care at MCC. I'm so excited every time I enter the classroom because it’s more learning for me and the teacher is very helpful. I love the way she teaches us. She explains every detail of the discussion. After I finish this course I think the knowledge I’ve learned from the course will be the beginning of my journey.

Edna (Student)
Aged Care

I loved completing MCC's (Digital) Literacy I-II class, I learned many things including E-mail, Word and Power Point. The course was Fee-Free which was a wonderful opportunity for me because I needed computer skills for the librarian course I want to do next year. Before completing this course, I didn’t know about "Google docs" but now I can use it. The skills I have gained will really benefit me now and in the future. In addition, my teacher was really kind and friendly which made me really enjoy the course. I recommend the course to future students who need computer skills and to help them progress to future courses like me.

Kaori (Student)
Digital Literacy I-II

I was interested in the computer literacy courses part 1 & 2 for work and to learn some basic computer skills. Before this course I had no idea how to use a computer. What I have now learnt will benefit me now and in the future. I enjoyed learning with my instructor and made some great friends. When I had a problem the instructor was understanding and everyone was very helpful. This course is a great experience and I recommend it for future students as it will be very helpful for the future and improving computer skills.

Lutfur (Student)
Digital Literacy I-II

I used to be an analogue person until I completed the Digital Literacy I-II courses. I was often frustrated when I faced difficulties using devices & software for computers. Thankfully, I was given a wonderful course by MCC to improve my digital skills. I learnt many skills including how to print, present in front of an audience, make my own business cards, and collaborate with other people online. Now I am getting more confident with using computers, USB and printing. I really would like to recommend this course to people who are struggling to use a computer.
